OMG! I'm in ice-cream heaven! This is so far the best ice-cream I've made! Imagine a smooth vanilla bean ice-cream, mixed with fresh sweet strawberries and add some crunchieniess from the cinnamon cookies. Yummie! I love making my own ice-cream, there are so many options, and it's supereasy. What's not to like:-)
Strawberry and Cookie Ice-Cream
4 egg yolks
3/4 dl sugar (75ml)
1 vanilla pod
3 1/2 dl whipping cream (350ml)
6 cookies of your choise (I used a cinnamon flavoured cookie), make crumbs
2 dl fresh strawberries (200ml)
2 tbsp sugar
Mix strawberries and combine with sugar. Set aside.
Mix egg yolks and sugar in a bowl until sugar dissolves and the mixture is creamy and fluffy. In a separate bowl, add whipping cream and vanilla seeds. Whip until fluffy. Combine both mixtures carefully. Pour the mixture in your ice-cream maker and follow instructions according to your brand.
When ice cream is chilled, scoop half the ice-cream into a dish, next pour half the strawberry sauce and sprinkle cookie crumbs on the ice-cream. Repeat this once more. Run a spoon through the mixture, so the layers get mixed. Place back in the freezer and allow to chill completely. (If you don’t have an ice-cream maker, pour the mixture in a plastic container and let it freeze for a couple of hours. Stir occasionally to minimize the amount of ice particles.)
